I am an Acadian from St. Bernard. When I was growing up I was surrounded by crafters. My grandmother and mother were constantly making all sorts of crafts using mostly recycled materials. I started sewing at a young age, making clothes for my dolls. As a teenager, I used my skills to make my own clothes. In my late teens I was introduced to the art of crochet. I was amazed that with only a hook and a spool of thread one could produce such intricate doilies and tablecloths. Knitting came shortly after that. My latest passion is rug hooking. Six years ago I joined the Rustic Crafters and learned how to hook mats. Since then I have spent countless hours creating many beautiful items.”
